Smart farming is a ‘new era’ solution for 21st Century Agriculture that helps millions of farmers globally to live a sustainable and integrated model of agriculture that helps create value chains for the market. It integrates wired and wireless information technologies to integrate its rain-dependent, geographically dispersed systems and enables location/area-specific services, decision making, production monitoring, precision agriculture, remote education, and connected communities. This report addresses how these smart farming solutions are building an ecosystem founded on interoperable IoT devices such as sensors, actuators, and mobile phones. Connecting IoT solutions for smart farming Agriculture is the backbone of any economy. Intelligent farming can increase food production to feed more people and generate more revenue. IoT plays a key role in a sustainable future and smart farming is making the options of how to automate intelligent systems available. The Internet-of-things (IoT) is transforming the agricultural industry, generating information that can help you optimize crop management, maximize resource use, control pests and diseases, improve efficiency at all stages of production, and create precision agriculture, resulting in higher quality products delivered right to your doorstep.
Connecting internet of things solutions and smart farming is a complex process that requires a lot of expertise and experience. IOT-FARMING.COM works as an innovative and reliable partner to develop successful IoT solutions in agriculture. We have been working in this field for over 6 years and learned valuable experience in many international projects. Our specialist teams have developed several products for the collection, management, analysis, and visualization of data from sensors, cameras, and other embedded devices connected to common control systems (HMI), machine control systems (DCS), or cloud applications. This presentation will cover different aspects of connecting the new IoT (Internet Of Things) solutions with smart farming. We would discuss what are the sources of the most critical challenges and pain points for farmers which can be mitigated by employing IoT solutions. At the same time, it will cover what is the scope of IoT solutions in the farming industry and their benefits as well as we would also go through different IoT platforms along with sensors, networks, and devices that can be employed in practical applications.
Farming is becoming more and more complex. On one hand there are new technologies to improve yields and sustainability for the benefit of humans and nature, on the other hand, environmental demands are on the rise too. Solutions have to be found, alternative business models have to be designed. Having read the publication you will know enough about the potential of IoT in agriculture, applications (like tracing, soil sensors, etc.), and players like IBM, skype, carl Zeiss.
If the number of companies that are involved in IoT is growing, which growth still comes from the west, it will be a challenge for China to contribute if this tendency continues. Although many large enterprises have entered the IoT industry step by step and have already achieved some progress, tons of problems are left behind for them.
Connecting IoT solutions and smart farming is a comprehensive overview of where we have been, what has been developing, and where we are going in the world of farming. This book covers examples ranging from large-scale farms to urban gardens, along with topics such as regulatory considerations and policy debates. Nothing makes farming more efficient and affordable than pooling resources. Connecting IoT solutions and smart farming tackles the global discussion surrounding these issues and provides perspectives from industry professionals on the real-world implementation of IoT solutions across diverse fields and industries. The book begins by exploring how the Internet of
Things work, which provides context for its use in agriculture, especially for large-scale producers. It then explores the potential benefits of these solutions for smallholder farmers and food security in Africa. The third chapter discusses IoT adoption across various sectors (e.g. logistics, insurance, health care), as well as commercialization strategies for enterprises that are considering IoT solutions in their business models. The fourth chapter explains how IoT technologies are set to disrupt traditional agrochemical industries and propose a new approach based on IoT-based services that provide sensors to collect information related to production or environmental conditions.
The first edition of this book presents IoT solutions and smart farming. The object of the book is to give an overview of the challenges and opportunities relating to this subject. The applications identified are in part selected because they represent the authors’ particular interests, but also provide evidence and proof of concepts.The document provides an overview of building IoT solutions for smart farming and discusses the product examples from the major players. The IoT solutions for smart farming can vary from the precision farm, precision irrigation, precision fertilization, precision livestock management in dairy, sheep & chicken to aquatic animals.
Smart farming has been a current trend in the agriculture industry. It is the next-generation agriculture solution that integrates internet of things (IoT) technology and Internet of Services (IoS). To improve agricultural efficiency and safety, farmers may apply the smart farming solution with IoT technology to achieve monitoring, control, and data analysis of agricultural machinery and resources such as water, soil condition, etc. This article aims to address the opportunities of connecting IoT solutions with smart farming. Whatever the purpose may be, this publication gives a complete overview so that you can gain a better understanding and see for yourself how IoT-based solutions can be implemented. You will find in-depth articles on livestock farming, arable farming, irrigation, and water management and the various ways in which farming could benefit from the innovative and versatile applications of IoT technology.
